may register at any time for this online workshop & work at your own pace. Scroll all the way down for payment options!
I am retiring from teaching and will no longer be available to answer questions or comment
on people's work in my online courses, but luckily, you get to benefit from my retirement! For the next month all my online
workshops will be half off and you can access all materials for a whole year to work at your own pace!! If there are any problems
with the workshop itself or technical issues please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org but I will not be following the course or
checking in. I am always available for private visual journaling consultations (sign up for any online course & you will receive discounts for private coaching!). Take advantage of this amazing
offer and register for these online courses before I close down for good!! All workshops are self explanatory and easy to
follow with full color ebooks and plenty of video!
In this Online Workshop, the Altered book format will serve as an introduction to the Extreme Visual
Journaling techniques developed by Juliana Coles in 1992. Altered States begins with an old library book, text book, record
album set, or any other all ready existing book form that can be altered to become your Visual Journal. In this creative
altered state you will tape, glue, sew, cut, paint, add fold outs and create found object tab dividers. By the end of this
workshop you will have prepared an entire book, cover to cover! This is an experiment, in 4 exciting lessons, that will influence
all your future books!
* Lesson #1: Introduction - provides a materials list & possible book forms with accompanying video,
audio, and Group Forum Questions.
* Lesson #2 will
be spent on Book Preparations by making more space to protect the spine, learning creative ways to add new pages and secret
envelopes, as well as setting up chapters or sections using tabs (I love tabs and things that sneak out the sides!).
* Lessons 3 & 4 will guide you through my unique self dialogue tools
that combine words with imagery while utilizing mixed media to create various backgrounds and texture for Altering, not just
your books, but also changing the outcome of your lives. Yes! Extreme Visual Journaling is THAT powerful!

of subjects discussed
